Industrial area location, a bit out of down-town Boulder. Visited on Friday of GABF at lunch time, which was very busy with lots of locals coming in for lunch and lots of out of towners coming for the tour. The interior was like a modern brewpub. They had 6 beers on draft, that I hadnít tried before. The service was quite fast even though the place was packed.
Nice atmosphere, fairly spacious with both indoor and outdoor seating, and a much improved bar area from what they had several years ago. Food is fine (Iíve only had the veggie burrito, and itís good but not as yummy as Mountain Sunís). Itís fairly rare that they have anything unique available (i.e., thatís not bottled), and if there is, itís usually just one. So I donít visit often, and am not a big fan of their beers in general, but itís a neat place. A lot of the staff seems to know precious little about the beers, oddly (both from discussions while visiting as well as when I call...seems I always have to work up the food chain a bit to get a definitive answer about things)...but they are usually polite and as helpful as they can be.
Good place to spend an evening, plenty of choices. Very noisy the night we went, due to the fact that it seemed more of a Restaurant atmosphere than a brewery. Nothing wrong with that, except it was sometimes difficult getting a beer. Lots of people there, so they seem to be doing the right thing!!
Took a tour on a Thursday afternoon. We arrived for the 2 PM tour a little early and sat in their really nice beer garden. Before the tour started, they offered us a free pint to take on the tour with us. The tour was very detailed (in a good way) and the woman giving the tour was extremely cool and knowledgable. We even got to talk to the brewer who was the inventor of Hazed and Infused. The tour guide even poured us a pint of the Mojo before it had the final hops added to it, and it was pretty good (although not as good as the regular Mojo). At the end of the tour, we got pitchers of nine beers to try, and since there were only five of us on the tour (two of whom were driving), we had plenty to go around. They had a lot of merchandise for sale, and even had a Double Dry Hopped Hazed and Infused on tap, although they wouldnít sell it in growlers. If you like Boulderís hoppy beers, definitely make the trip and go on the tour if you can. It is well worth it.
In a little industrial park conveniently 2 blocks off my long drive to the southern part of Denver. Had the whole work crew here for our weekly happy hour (normally @ Avery, mixing it up). When the weatherís nice (as it was), awesome patio. Great service and decent beer. Nothing in Boulderís lineup blows me away, but a great place to shoot the work sh*t and have some decent brew and food in the sun for a couple of hours.
Superb pub ambiance, lots of fun things on the walls. Tour was incredible, ending in free draught pitchers of all their available beer in the back private room. Superb food at ok prices. Lovely little rotating special tap that is different every time you go. A must visit for Coloradoans.
Fun place, friendly folks. The beer was so-so and there isnít many different kinds. Prices were good. Overall a good time but there is too much competition in the area.

Nice pub style atmosphere, with a large patio outside. Decent service. Good prices. Everything on tap was stuff that I could get locally, other than an oak-aged Mojo on nitro. Decent location, although it would be nice if it was closer to downtown.

Nice atmosphere, large brewpub with medium bar and large patio. At least a dozen beers on tap at any time, with several seasonals that rotate. Some of the milder offerings are fairly forgettable but the cask, barrel aged beers, and imperial brews are good. Employees are usually attentive and friendly. Menu is mostly standard pub/taproom offerings but is pretty good and reasonably priced. Couple of TVs near bar for sports. Always a nice spot for a pint.
